No. of years in travel: 23 years. I joined the travel industry to travel, 25 years on, above all else that is still what I love to do, now mostly with my family. Travel for as long as you can, as far as you can is a mantra I live by.

23 years in travel. I still feel that child-like giddy excitment whenever I travel. I'm constantly looking for new ways to feed my wanderlust. I love that I get to inspire people's next adventures, and help to create the very best holiday for them.
9 years in travel. I was “bitten by the travel bug” at age 15 on my first overseas trip. From there, travel through South East Asia and New York cemented my love of visiting new places and experiencing new cultures. Travel was well and truly in my blood!
29 years experience in travel. “If the world is your Oyster, I’ll take a dozen!” My experience with travel also strongly correlates with my other passion: Food! In fact, if you look through my travel photos, most of them include an exotic delicious dish!
My love of travel started of when I was young travelling around New Zealand. My travel bucket list has not stopped growing ever since!
I am super passionate and love the travel industry. I caught the travel bug as soon as I hopped on a plane for my first overseas trip and have been hooked ever since!
I have assisted travellers in creating memorable experiences and satisfying their wanderlust for 5 year as a travel consultant in Brazil. Now based in New Zealand, I'm looking forward to helping you plan your your next adventure
